Our classes focus on learning the 7 Elements of Design (line, shape, form, color, value, texture, and space) and how they are used in art. We do this through fun projects that explore various art mediums.
For the more advanced students we also introduce the 7 Principles of Design (balance, movement, rhythm, contrast, emphasis, pattern, and unity). We allow the students to explore these principles by creating works of art in many different art mediums.
Every class is different from week to week!
The student will explore a wide range of medium incorporating all the elements and principles of design. This will include watercolor, ink, pastel, acrylic, pencil and clay.
Part of our Vision is for the teachers to share Fred Oldfield’s values by share his painting techniques, his zest for life, his knowledge of survival in the art world and his incomparable gift of living life with a full cup.
Fred, himself will make appearances. He will also be available to answer questions while he is working in his bunkhouse/studio at the Center.
The Center invites students of all ages and economic situations. It offers scholarships to students on merit not on academic achievement.
Please call for information on the scholarships available. 253-752-9708
